Album: If All The Land Would Rise
Lyrics and Music by Ethan Miller

A song against the oppressive policies and actions of the eight capitalist superpowers of the world, and a call to resist the power of nation states with the power of grassroots self-organization and mutual aid!
They've built a fortress around every meeting,
And it's guarded by soldiers and cops
So they can make all their plans and negotiations
About how they're gonna stay at the top

And when they're done they'll release a few statements
About how their charity will feed the whole world
When all they really did was solidify their strategies
To ravage us with exploitation and war…

How can we be silent with so much at stake?
Your rules were just made for the people to break
You may try to dictate the entire world's fate
But we are six billion - and you - are only - eight.

You say liberalized trade, yeah it's been done before
So that they can all profit off the blood of the poor
You say, “let market forces do their fine job”
So you won't take the blame
For the millions you’ve robbed

G8, IMF, WTO
FTAA, NAFTA, World Bank, NGO
Clothe it in acronyms, dress it up fine
It still ain't no more than the world's greatest crime

How can we be silent with so much at stake?
Your rules were just made for the people to break
You may try to dictate the entire world's fate
But we are six billion - and you - are only eight…


The health of our children, the wealth of our work
Our languages, cultures, all life on this earth
So far from the walls behind which you scheme
To take us and break us and remake our dreams..

While you build a world out of money and greed
With your states and your armies and big companies
We'll water the seeds of rebellion and grow
Strong with the weeds that erupt from below.

How can we be silent with so much at stake?
Your rules were just made for the people to break
You may try to dictate the entire world's fate
But we are six billion - and you - are only eight…

…You may try to dictate the entire world's fate
But we are six billion - and you - are only eight!…
